The game has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon. It's been downloaded an estimated 30 million times. 

And with so many people playing, some unfortunate incidents were bound to happen. Two teens playing the game were even shot at while parked in front of a man's home, and two more fell off a cliff while playing. 

So just remember to pull over to catch Pokémon. It's probably not worth putting yourself or others at risk.
